We have developed a new header style for our Byzantium theme which extends the type of data which can be presented.
The header is fully customisable via the settings in the back-end, allowing you to fit your brand and style for your event
Please contact one of our team members in order to activate the feature on your website
The Advanced Header features include:
Additional bar placed above the header including a Tag line, editable Contact Button, and a Search Bar
New navigation layout with a more visual appearing menu including icons
Additional content area at the bottom of the header supporting website headline, sub-headline or any other custom content
I can’t take credit for this idea, it was given to me by one of our clients, Janine Winfield of Alternative events. It’s a great way to display news, press and blog content in a list, with links to the full content with no need for extra modules and fees.
It’s a great idea, here’s a demo: https://www.alternativeai.co.uk/alternative-view/.
Add a new sponsor type: “News story”, “Blog Post”….
Admin > Sponsors > Sponortypes
Add New sponsors tagged to the group “News story”. Use the Sponsor Logo for the featured image that is displayed in the list. Use the Sponsor URL to link to more information.
Admin > Sponsors > Add New Sponsor
We are working on a new Blog pack with lots of enhanced features – contact us for more info.
A standard, you have an disk space allocation of 50 Meg on the mira.cx platform. When you reach that limit you have 2 options:
Pay for an unlimited amount of storage – at a cost of £10 per month or £100 for the year.
Delete some stuff.
How to stay within the limit:
You can tell how much of the disk space you have used up by looking on the dashboard.
TIP #1 – When you upload images onto the website, WordPress keeps the original file as well as the versions used on the site. It is therefore important that when you upload files onto the site, they are as small as possible.
In the example above, the file uploaded is 591k (1/2 Meg or 2.3% of the available space. It is a 2 colour logo and should be no bigger than 5k.
Not only does old data and information use up valuable disk space, there is also a risk that out-of-date information will be picked up by Google.
Start by removing pages, posts, seminars, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and associated tracks, dates and groups.
Look in the media library for media marked as “unattached” and delete it
Remember to remove it permanently from the system.
June’s Site of the Month is Building Live for UBM. We created this site using our Byzantium theme using very well thought out assets for the event branding. We were then able to translate these into a very engaging design within the WordPress theme
What is it
The Exhibitor Zone is a back office function which allows Exhibitors access so they can upload their own information, logos, bios and links.
How it works
Once you have added the exhibitor to the system and chosen a password they will be sent an email with login details and links to the Exhibitor Zone.
Exhibitors will also see a progress bar1 so they will know if there are still outstanding items to complete when they login.
